Below are some safety tips from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Personal Safety Measures
Home Safety
Telephone Safety
Outdoor Safety
Car Safety
 
Home Safety

Install a peephole in your front door so you can see callers without opening the door. Do not rely on chains.
Ask for proper identification from delivery men or strangers. Don't be afraid of asking -- if they are legitimate they won't mind.
Keep windows and doors secured with adequate locks at all times. For ventilation, secure windows open no more than five inches.
Close your curtains or blinds at night to prevent strangers from seeing you are alone.
Women who live alone should list only their last name and first initial in phone directories and on mailboxes.
Be alert to protect your neighbors and yourself. Never mention to a stranger that a neighbor lives, or is at home, alone.
When a stranger asks to use the telephone, do not permit him to enter. Offer to summon emergency assistance or make the call for him.
DO NOT HIDE SPARE KEYS. Give your keys to trusted neighbors. There is NO safe place to hide an extra key.
If you come home and find a door or window open or signs of forced entry, don't go in. Go to the nearest phone and call the police.
Have good lighting at all entrances.
 
Telephone Safety

Do not give information about yourself to strangers over the phone or admit that you are alone.
If you have an answering machine, the message should be recorded by a male and should not give out any personal information or say "I'm not home."
Hang up immediately on obscene callers.
Keep all emergency numbers near the phone. 

Outdoor Safety

Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you -- especially if you are alone or it is dark.
Don't walk alone, especially at night.
Walk at a steady pace with a self-assured stride.
Walk on the side of the street facing traffic.
Do not respond to conversation from strangers on the street -- continue walking.
If a driver asks directions, don't get too close to the car.
If an occupant or a vehicle persists in bothering you, cross the street and walk or run in the opposite direction.
If you are followed, get away fast. Change direction and/or walk in a crowded area.
If in danger, scream and run, yell "fire" or break a window to attract attention.
Hold your purse tightly, close to your body. Keep your wallet in a front or buttoned hip pocket or side coat pocket. When walking in a parking lot, carry your purse on the side that is closest to parked vehicles.
Carry as little cash as possible.
Don't hitchhike.
Have your key ready in your hand so you can open the door to your home or car immediately.
Use intuition. If you feel insecure, ask a store manager or security guard to escort you to your car. Most will.

Car Safety

Always keep windows rolled up and doors locked after entering or leaving your car.
Always have your car keys in your hand so you can get into your car immediately.
Always check the back seat before entering your car.
Never leave your keys in your car, even if you will only be gone a moment.
Never leave your purse in sight, hide it under your seat or in the glove compartment.
When parking, look for any suspicious persons loitering before leaving your car.
Always park in well-lighted areas.
If you're being followed by another car, NEVER DRIVE HOME. Honk your horn in short bursts to attract attention and drive to a gas station, police or fire department.
Always keep your car in good running condition with at least half a tank of gas.
If your car breaks down, pull over to the right as far as possible, raise the hood, and wait inside for help. Do not get out of the car or unroll the window until the police arrive.
Do not pick up hitchhikers.
